    It took me a couple evenings while watching Television to finish this. This is not a conventional pattern, since I am not a professional pattern writer, but it is a simple pattern and should be easy enough for a beginner. It is a one-piece pattern. The only sewing needed is to form the sleeves. The pattern begins at one cuff and ends at the other cuff. If you have any problems, email me for assistance.

    Supplies and tools: Aluminum Crochet Hook size K 4 ply worsted yarn---10-15 ounces (amount will vary according to size) Yarn Needle to sew sleeve seams

    Fold finished piece here for TTsewing sleeves

    B to C is half the Back Measurement

    This red line is the fold line for sewing sleeves

    The measurement examples are my personal measurements Begin by taking measurements in inches.

    A to B is edge of your palm at wrist to underarm ----17 inches B to D is from shoulder to shoulder across back ---17 inches { You may need help with B to D} C marks the middle of the back. You will be increasing on the first

    half to this point , adding a couple rows without increases, and then decreasing for the second half.

  • To begin: CH 37, turn and DC into 3rd CH and each CH across. CH 3, turn. ( 36DC) NOTE: Work all stitches in all rows in the back loop only.

    End each row with CH 3, turn. Row 2: DC in each DC across. CH 3, turn. (36 DC) Turning CH counts as DC. Row 3: Repeat row 2 . (36 DC) Row 4: Repeat row 2. (36 DC)

    Row 5: Increase 1 DC in first st. DC in each DC across to last st. Increase 1 DC in last st. (38 DC)

    Rows 6, 7, and 8: DC in each DC across. (38 DC) From this point, the stitch increases will depend on your personal measurements

    Repeat rows 5, 6, 7, and 8 until your piece reaches the length of your sleeve measurement. Mark this row with a scrap of contrasting yarn or a safety pin. This is where the Back begins. Continue as for sleeve, but repeat only rows 5 and 6. Continue with these increases until your work measures half the back (from B to C) from your marker. Next 2 rows: Work DC in each DC across with no increases. Place a marker. Beginning with next row, decrease 1 st at beginning and 1 st at the end of row. Next row : DC in each DC across. Repeat these two rows until your back measurement (from B to D) is reached.

    Place another marker at this point, which is the beginning of the other sleeve.

    Continue as for back, except decrease every 4th row instead of every 2nd row. Repeat until you have 36 stitches in the row . The number of rows will depend on your personal measurements. Work the last 4 rows with 1DC in each DC across (36 DC) End off.

    Fold the sweater in half (see red line in illustration on page 1). Sew the sleeves from The wrist up to 2 inches before the marker at B and at D. My example would be 15. inches If sleeves are a little longer than you like, just fold back and form a double cuff. When you put the shrug on, turn the top edge back slightly to form a collar, and Pull the bottom down to straighten.
